I found a box with a label that makes me think all the pieces of the quilt are in it....
Well, I hope everything is in there.
It's been a while since I have worked on this...
DH has looked on and nodded when I show him my progress on finishing a block for the stash bee, for a charity quilt, he was glad to get the Play with Me game pillows.
He looked on when I worked out the quilting for the charity quilts that I finished this year.
But I remember him standing in the doorway and watching me layout the purple windmill quilt and asking me who was getting that... (Feb and March OMG)
It's time for him to have a quilt. It's time for us to have a quilt.
It will be scary really to have a quilt that I make that stays here. It's scary that I've gone ahead and made the quilts for Denver and for Sweden too - but even a bigger step perhaps to say that I will make a quilt that will stay here!
I've read him the post by ChrissieD - "even the dog has two quilts" to make him laugh and realize he wasn't the only husband without a quilt.
There was a quilt book that I can't find right now that talked about how the author was finally making a quilt for her husband. Heck, just search for "quilts for husband" and you will read about quilters who have left their family without - even though their hobby or their livelihood is quilt making!
So he isn't alone. We aren't alone. But by the end of this month I at least want to have the quilt top made.
Here is a post where I wrote about the project - in 2013 complete with an encouraging note from Heidi - Red Letter Day OMG Heidi!
Wish me luck!
Hope you will click to see what the others are planning to finish this month and cheer them on!
